Trapani

Surrounding the harbour where Peter of Aragon landed in 1282 to begin the Spanish occupation of Sicily, the sickle-shaped spit of land occupied by Trapani's old town once sat at the heart of a powerful trading network that stretched from Carthage to Venice. Traditionally the town thrived on coral and tuna fishing, with some salt and wine production. These days, Trapani's port is busy with ferry traffic to the Egadi Islands and Pantelleria, and the adjacent historic centre is a popular place to stroll, for both locals and travellers awaiting their next boat.
